Macklemore & Ryan Lewis were back in New York this week and yesterday held a concert at YouTube’s headquarters. Following their performance, yours truly moderated a Q&A with the duo. If you haven’t done so, cop The Heist here.
Guess who snuck through the back door. Tomorrow, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ debut album The Heist is expected to occupy the number 2 spot on the Billboard Top 200. According to HDD, the tandmen moved close to 75,000 in its first week—independently.
Also ranking high on the charts is Machine Gun Kelly’s debut, Lace Up, which will reach number 4 with an estimated 50,000 copies sold. Final tally tomorrow.
UPDATE: Macklemore & Ryan Lewis: 78,000 | MGK: 51,000 via billboard
This is a match made in heaven. For Miller’s new ad campaign, the beer maker licensed Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’ track, “Can’t Hold Us“. Raise your hands and glasses: it’s Miller Time, bitch!
Prior to XXL’s Freshman Live Concert two nights ago, we caught up with Macklemore and Ryan Lewis. The Seattle natives spoke on life after the Bowery Ballroom, their excellent stage show, hip-hop scene in The Emerald City, and remaining independent as fuck. Photos after the jump.
